I spent a week here with a group on a yoga retreat. Everything was perfect, a little primitive for some but I wasn't looking for ordinary. I felt at home in this paradise. Everyone did their job exceptionally well, but more importantly, made personal connections feel natural. Food, bar, housekeeping was wonderful. Kate made my feet feel fabulous with a reflexology treatment. Nature hike with Andy was enlightening, paddle boarding with Pollo - he was patient with this exhausted 57 year old woman. Just sitting and watching the birds, bugs and other creatures was fantastic, the fragrance of ylang ylang wafted through the yard from time to time. Getting there from San Jose was a perfect adventure. Flying with Sansa was great, arriving beside the cemetery was interesting, the trip to ELV w Denise and return w/ Chon was great. Language differences do not stop communication. I completed my trip with an evening conversation with a 5 year old boy from Sweden (we did a lot of pointing to animal pictures) he knew no English and I knew only a swedish nursery rhyme. Stopping in the church by the runway Sunday morning capped off my visit. Santo, Santo, Santo Senor.
